4 Zoom Cybersecurity Tips To Keep Your Meetings Safe

  1. Don’t Share Meeting Info On Social Media. It may be easier to get the word out about your next big meeting by using social media, but without the right security settings in place, anyone can get that info. If you need to share an invite, do it directly over email.
  2. Set A Password For Your Meeting. In Zoom’s settings, you can enable a password requirement for all instant meetings.
  3. Enable Default Encryption. In the advanced settings, make sure to enable H.323 and SIP Encryption.
  4. Verify Links. Hackers have been acquiring Zoom-based domain names to trick users into clicking the wrong meeting invites. All legitimate links will have”zoom.us” in them.
